Stacy returned to her home state in 2017 to be closer to family and settle into her favorite place on earth – St. George, Utah. Every day since then, she has marveled at the breathtaking landscape, friendly people, endless days of sunshine and countless recreational opportunities surrounding her. She enjoys biking, hiking, kayaking, hammocking and playing pickleball with her husband – her best friend. Together, they have five extraordinary children and one grandchild. Stacy loves living closer to her parents, siblings and other family members who are mostly sprinkled throughout the state of Utah.
